You got your money, honey, I got mine
Your tongue’s been moving, baby, serpentine
Your lips are twisting but it’s all just hiss
You need to shut ‘em, sugar, listen to this

Your body’s breaking like a Pacific crest
You need to give it, child, give it a rest
You’re entertaining, but it’s all just tricks
You need to shut it, sugar, listen to this

I said, I said, I said
The broken record breaking in
Again, again, again,
Et cetera and shaking

I used to dream of you behind my eyelids
Technicolor at the lonely drive-in
You looked so pretty on the silver projection
But never graced me with the slightest reaction

You’re getting older and it shows in the light
A smaller audience on opening night
Tell me, honey, did you pick out your dress?
You need to cool it, sugar, I’m not impressed


I think my love is shifting
I think it’s moving on
I think these chains are lifting
I think they’re really gone
